Iran‘s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has officially launched a Spanish-language satellite TV channel, saying it would deal a blow to “dominance seekers” – remarks that were an apparent dig at the US and the west.
Iran’s broadcasting company said Hispan TV, the first Spanish-language channel airing from the Middle East, will broadcast news, documentaries, movies and Iranian films 24 hours a day.
The launch is Tehran’s latest effort to reach out to friendly governments in Latin America and follows Ahmadinejad’s tour of the region earlier in January, which included stops in Cuba and visits to Venezuela, Nicaragua and Ecuador.
